For several years now, one of my favorite websites for Minnesota writers has been Northography.Com, which gathers together novice and experienced writers alike to respond to a weekly stimulus, many often selected from the artistic offerings of other Minnesota artists, or items with a more timeless and universal quality.
I strongly recommend it for anyone who is interested in connecting with other Minnesota writers. Several writers who've met through Northography have gone on to collaborate together on their own projects and readings, to great success.
The Laotian American writer Saymoukda Vongsay and I are regular contributors, and you find many talented figures here. Whistling Shade, one of my favorite Minnesota publications, has been a longtime supporter of Northography since it first launched.
It's still a rare thing to see a full, official Northography reading in the Twin Cities, which makes Friday, November 14th exciting!
Doors open at 6:30pm and from 7 to 10 PM to feature 13 of Northography's contributors, reading for just 5 minutes each:
The performance is at the acclaimed Intermedia Arts at 2822 Lyndale Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55408. We'd love for you to join us!
Don't Forget: The SASE/Jerome Grants for Emerging Writers are due November 10th, and if you're eligible your should really try to apply!
Looking forward to seeing you!
